Like many children of divorced parents, Prince William and Prince Harry spent a lot of time shuffling between their mother and father growing up. But in a new heartbreaking admission, Prince Harry revealed that he and William hadn't seen Diana for about a month before she died


Prince William and Prince Harry were vacationing with their father Prince Charles while their mother was away on several humanitarian trips. Earlier in the summer, they went with Diana on a trip with the Al Fayed family. The princes were set to meet up with their mom on August 31, which happened to be the day she died. 

During a scene in the documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, Harry -- while talking with two landmine victims whom Diana met when she went on her last mission to Bosnia -- admitted that it had been several weeks since he'd seen his mother. "You guys were almost the last people to see my mother," Harry tells them. "Well, you saw my mother more recently than I did, I guess."

In the doc, Prince Harry also recalls what it was like constantly splitting their time between their father and their mother. "There was the point where our parents split and ... we never saw our mother enough or we never saw our father enough," Harry admits. "There was a lot of traveling and lot of fights on the back seat with my brother -- which I would win."

Harry, who was 12 when his mother died, also recalls the final phone call he had with his mother before she passed, which, from the sound of things, was a pretty run of the mill mother-son phone call. "If I'd known that that was the last time I was going to speak to my mother, the things that I would -- the things I would have said to her," Harry says in the film. 

Both Prince William and Prince Harry have turned into incredible men, despite the hardship they faced at such a young age. But clearly, they still haven't healed from the wounds of their past -- and it's doubtful they ever fully will.
